Accommodation at YHA Dartmoor

Bed in a shared room

Dorms are not currently available. 

Dorm rooms have multiple beds, are typically more affordable than private rooms, and shared with other people who may not be travelling together. A typical shared room includes bunk beds, a reading light and a storage cupboard for each guest, secured by a padlock if required.

Children aged between 12 and 15 can stay in dorm rooms as long as an adult of the same gender accompanies them.

Some dorms may be en-suites, meaning that they have a bathroom in the room that you would be sharing with the other people in your dorm.

Private rooms

Don't fancy sharing a room? Private rooms typically include a storage cupboard for each bed, secured by a padlock if required, a reading light and a wash hand basin. Shared shower and toilet facilities are located near to the room.

Camping

Camping is available from £5 per person per night. 

Our small but practical camping area is great for weekend getaways in the great outdoors. The hostel facilities are right on the doorstep and campers have access to them 24 hours a day. Campfires are strictly prohibited on the campsite.

Hire the whole place

This hostel is occasionally made available for hire on an exclusive basis. This means that you can have the place to yourself and choose how many of your friends, family, club mates, etc., join you.

We allocate availability for exclusive use in blocks, typically up to 90 days in the future. If you are looking for space to stay with us on a normal shared basis, and can’t see any availability three months or more into the future, then this hostel may be being held for Exclusive Hire.
